Jonah and Elemeno P face off for kids’ charities

Jonah and Elemeno P face off for kids’ charities

AUCKLAND, 24 June 2008 – Rugby legend Jonah Lomu and Kiwi rockers Elemeno P go head-to-head on Trade Me this week. 

Images of the celebs feature on custom-designed Xbox 360® consoles which are being auctioned for charity.

Xbox 360® has teamed up with celebrities from TV, sports, music and fashion, and is auctioning off personally-signed celebrity Xbox 360® consoles to raise funds for two deserving charities - The Starship Foundation and Cure Kids in New Zealand.

Each star-studded console has a one-of-a-kind autographed image of a celebrity airbrushed on to it. 100% of proceeds from the auction go to The Starship Foundation and Cure Kids.

Head to to bid.

Money raised through the sale of celebrity Xbox 360® consoles is approaching $2000.  Last week, more than 130 bids were placed on two Outrageous Fortune consoles (Van/Munter and Pascalle/Loretta) which raised $500 and $380 respectively. 

More consoles will be revealed each week until the end of July.

Don’t be shy! Bid for your favourite celebrity-signed console to help make a difference for children’s health in New Zealand.
